I reckon monochrome is a good choice for this image, BC. You have a good slice of the grey scale, especially white and black. You have a figure moving along a perspective. Everything I am learning and try to achieve. At the moment, I am a bit loathe to take the blue out of the water.

Is that an axe Mr BC doth carry?

brattcat said...

Not an axe, a walking stick. Mr. BC made it himself.

More wet snow here yesterday too. Lots of whiteness this morning. This is a wonderful shot of two special people moving away... a keeper!

Julie sounds like a serious photographer. The scene you shot looks very much like it does hereabouts. Instead of snowshoes (which grace our downstairs fireplace), I'm dragging out the X-country skiis this year. Have fun in the snow!

What a lovely winter, snowy scene! Fun to go for a walk with your daughter! I wish we had gotten out for a long walk in the snow during our Christmas vacation. Well we did go sledding on Grandpa and Grandma's hill in the backyard!

Rob and Mandy said...

Well, there you go, snowcats! Lots more snow then we had, nice!

That's a bit different from my walks...

Doing something together in a landscape of silence... what a precious gift.

There's nothing like a woodland walk after a fall of snow. Very nice photo.

Looks like they're having fun...We can't have that fun over here in LA. I guess a little snow will make the holidays more enjoyable for the families here. Have a Blessed New Year from LADP!

You are making me more jealous by the minute! This is a gorgeous photo, you do realize that?

Love the shades of black, white and gray; love the pair forging their way down their path; love the snowshoes and the pristine snow!

Very nice shot of the 'cats. Works well in sepia.

Steffe said...

Are you sure this is not in Haninge? Looks very familiar.

JM said...

I second VP and Virginia... :-) This is such a lovely composition! Your husband and daughter make such a wonderful contrast to the snow.

Elenka said...

Daddy and daughter...don't know many things nicer.
Beautiful.

I've read about these but never got a chance to try them. Are they very easy to walk on? As always, lovely shot!

Perfect snowshoe weather. Nice capture!

It looks like your two dear cats have a pretty good stride going into the winter wonderland. I would frame this one to gaze at on those sultry summer days.
